I am always painting so if you don’t like what you see today you might like something tomorrow.

Boat Person


I was a boat person. One of the originals. So was my father and mother and two brothers and sisters. All boat people. We landed in Australia without the warnings or the threat to be sent back. That was our decision. I have no memories of that time. I was far too young. All my memories were placed in me by my mother. Anecdotes administered over the years so that they became memories. Real.

Nigel and Kate

In 2001 my friend Nigel asked me to paint anything I wanted that he would give to his wife Kate on their 10th wedding anniversary. That was the beginning of my map series.
